I actually stumbled across that earlier, but I convinced myself it
couldn't be the right way to do it.
foo-ver-rel doesn't exist until after prep, so to copy these files in,
you have to run the prep...finish steps by hand, so you can insert them
between prep and compile, right? I'm getting hung up on the existence
of the almostall and all commands: what's their value if you have to do
something outside of cygport between prep and compile?
If cygport can do these steps for you, then I see the point of almostall
and all again. If it doesn't do these things for you now, will you
accept a patch to make it do so?
